New to Britain Recently added to the British list and not yet reviewed, but it is still rare as far as we know status
neutral/acid seepage Seepages from more pH neutral or acidic aquifers, such as the sandstones or shales. It will be influenced by the local soils and vegetation. resource
nests Species associated with the nests of other animals; may be further subdivided into types of nest (of vertebrates or other invertebrates). resource

museum collections Synanthropic species associated with museum collections label
moss & tussock fen The assemblage appears to avoid open water and require tussocks and/or isolated bushes for shelter. They are best expressed in permanently wet habitats. SAT
moss Species is associated with epiphytic mosses resource
montane & upland The assemblage type is most frequently found above the natural tree line, i.e. wherever exposure limits the growth of trees and tall shrubs and allows the development of dwarf shrubs and other forms of stress-tolerant vegetation. SAT
moist wood mould Accumulations of woody material, fungi and animal fragments that can be found filling up within the centre of a hollow tree, saturated with water resource
moist white rot Fungal rot that digests all of the wood, including the lignin, in this case leaving a soupy porridge. resource
moist red rot Fungal rot that does not destroy lignin, leaving a crumbly red-brown material, in this case damp. resource
mature tree canopy Species associated with the canopy of mature trees, either as adults or as larvae. resource
marshland This habitat is associated with still open water bodies and littoral areas on mineral substrates that may be subject to repeated disturbance, for example by flooding or grazing. Floodplain sites may be inundated for varying periods either by surface run-off or by rising groundwater, but between floods, they can lose surface water to reveal a substrate that is humid rather than saturated. habitat
mammalian burrows Subterranean mammal homes with breeding chambers and associated tunnels. resource
mammal/bird nests Occupied or abandoned mammal or bird breeding structures, which includes those in tunnels, tree holes, roof voids and squirrel dreys resource
living sapwood Species feeding on living sapwood. resource
litter & ground layer A terrestrial layer consisting of a mixture of soil and often, plant litter. resource
limestone A sedimentary rock, in this instance, consisting of hard outcrops of rocks as opposed to soft chalky/sandy rock. resource
light shade Species associated with lighter shade conditions, within sheltered woodland resource
lichen Species is associated with epiphytic lichens resource
Legal Protection Species given some form of special protection through wildlife legislation. status
leaves and/or stems Species feed on leaves or green stems. resource
leaves (miners) Species with larvae that feed between the upper and lower layers of leaves, creating a mine through the leaf as they feed. Many species develop inside a single leaf, some transfer between several leaves during their larval development. resource
